Emmaus is a homelessness charity with a difference, providing more than just a bed for the night.

Companions, as the people we support are known as, are offered a home for as long as they need it, as well as meaningful work at our social enterprise where we recycle and sell pre-loved furniture and other household goods, donated by local people. This approach gives companions the opportunity to take stock of their lives, deal with any issues they may face, reconnect with loved ones and rebuild the self-esteem that is often destroyed when they become homeless.

We are currently looking for a company secretary as well as someone with fundraising experience to join our board of trustees. If you have experience in legal/compliance roles or fundraising background, please do get in touch by emailing duncan.lewis@emmaus.org.uk.  This is a great opportunity to join a dynamic and diverse board and to use your knowledge to support people out of homelessness.
